I love books about people adjusting to new worlds, so I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Almost my only complaint is that the author tries to cover too many different students; it's just not possible to do justice to the stories of 11 different students in such a short space while still trying to explain the background of the situation. I sometimes found that I had lost track of who was who, and I was left wanting a more complete version of their stories. I hope some of them will eventually choose to tell their own stories themselves.
Still, this was an interesting overview and the pages went by quickly. I would recommend it if you're interested in the subject.
